This panel is designed to be permanently glued into the wing during assembly and then attach the landing gear once painting and trim are finished. It's supported by the leading edge and the spar on a swappable series size wing. The gear wire is held in place by small (3" or 4") wire ties...

Would anyone like an All Terrain Landing gear tutorial for a sharp looking heavy duty set of landing gear. I wouldn't mind doing the tutorial if I get some responses to this post. I have attached a few pictures showing the landing gear design.

Hi guys! Greetings from Argentina!
I've been watching FT videos for a while until I had the guts to place an order and go for it! Since then, (around 6 months now), I've learned A LOT and I can't stop. Every weekend is just about flying. I already have an Storch, (the most amazing plane I'll...
My Mini-Sportster Build Mods
I’m relatively new to RC airplanes compared to many here, Flying just over a year and building about as long. About a dozen or so FT designs so far both scratch and speed build kits, plus a few modified planes based on FT design and one or two started with a...
Hello FT crew!
Does anyone know the weight of the dragonfly frame? Also what is the spacing of the motor mount holes (standard disk, not tilt mount)? One more question, what is the suggested landing gear setup. (I don't think the supplied gear will work with 2 motors pointing down :)
This can't be right. Wire for landing gear in an Old Fogey Speed build kit.
Couldn't budge it by hand. I could barely bend this stuff even in a vice, had to use a hammer. Certainly couldn't get accurate dimensions.
0.12" or 3.2mm
Any other recent kits include this wire?
Pictured above is my idea for landing gear that was derived from a quick modification to some ParkZone T28 gear I had sitting around. (To the left is my beater gear that never actually works)
I needed some more robust landing gear than the rubber band and bent wire but I wasn't about to pay $15...
So I just finished my ft spitfire and I LOVE it. But I want a landing gear that I can easily take on and off. Does anyone have any ideas or any creations of their own that they can share?
Might sound a bit crazy but has anyone thought about or actually made a good set of landing gear for a flying wing?
I am quite keen on installing some landing gear or retracts on my Zephyr II or future projects. Hand launching a 2.5kg flying wing isn't too much fun and it'd be...
